Garrett County Chamber of Commerce Presents Fire on the Mountain Fireworks Display July 4th

Fireworks will light up the sky this July 4 as the Garrett County Chamber of Commerce presents the annual “Fire on the Mountain” Fireworks Display.

The display is set to begin around 9:30 pm. The fireworks are launched from the top of the Tubing Park at Wisp Resort. Prime viewing locations include the Scenic Overlook on Route 219, Wisp Resort, local businesses in McHenry, and from a boat on the lake, particularly around McHenry Cove.

“We would like to thank all of our Fire on the Mountain sponsors; we could not put on such a fabulous show without their support,” said Sarah Duck, Vice President of Tourism & Marketing at the Garrett County Chamber of Commerce. “Be sure to take advantage of the Independence Day activities throughout the area! On Saturday, July 1st, don’t miss Accident’s Homecoming, including their parade. On the evening of Monday, July 3rd, head to Broadford Park Recreation Area in Oakland for live patriotic music and their Independence Day fireworks. Then wrap up the holiday with a big bang at our Fire on the Mountain Fireworks display on July 4th.” Check our online calendar of events at for full event details.
